We provide bodywork, massage therapy and energy work sessions for your health and well being.  We offer  classes to enable you to help yourself, your family, and your clients.



Ortho-Bionomy® is a bodywork system that is easily utilized by itself or with many other modalities.  It’s ease and gentleness for both the practitioner and the client are among it’s outstanding features. 


By finding structural balance, blood circulates more freely, the body functions more effectively, and muscles find new poise.  Ortho-Bionomy® helps the body find new, more efficient patterns of function and movement.


Reiki is a simple and deeply powerful form of healing.  It enriches the lives of everyone touched by it, either in giving or receiving it.  It is a practice in itself and it adds zest and power to other forms of energy work bodywork or massage.
